Tried to get to the range today, the indoor range, to sight in my MR but it was already booked up for today and tomorrow. I'll have to wait for next week. No reservations are needed during the week. The building is huge. There's a pretty good gun shop they have 4 separate ranges that could accommodate 8 shooters at one time. 32 lanes booked for the weekend @ $20.00 for 90 mins. I think we are in the wrong business. scratch

Ray I wonder if the range is packed due to March being a month that a lot of matches are held..I just got the news letter for New England and there are lots of them coming up on week ends ..our club has one coming up also...they cleared the range of snow Friday...but its snowing again now...but there was 5 feet out to the target boards..now cleared...most of the matches are pistol matches that were listed...called March Maddness matches

My out door range is a little far for me, 115 miles round trip, just to go for a little while in this weather. That's why I was headed for the indoor but no dice. I don't if there are matches going on now but it could be.

AL-53, when you get time check this range out and make sure you check out the video on the WILDERNESS and SKIRMISH area. I just wish it was closer to me. I work here as a range officer a few times a year in the WILDERNESS ARE which is for muzzle loaders and weapons prior to 1894. Some times I'm amazed to see and shoot some real original and antique guns. The skirmish area is built up like a western cowboy town and that's were all the cowboy and SASS shoots are conducted a long with the CIVIL WAR ENACTMENTS.

It's more like you live in the wrong area.

Same here... small, local sportsman club ranges.  Outdoor ranges only, but you can usually find a time when you can shoot as long as you want. I was really spoiled when I lived in PA...5 minutes up the hill from the house and there was my range....300 yards worth of farmer's field!

It's unusual to find an indoor range that allows rifles or muzzleloaders. I don't need one but there's one near here .. no bullets with exposed lead, no centerfire rifles and absolutely no muzzleloaders.

Bob,

I'm lucky I guess. Check out this indoor range.....article2range.com......This is the only one I found in the area and I probably check out 5 or 6 ranges. The outdoor door range is open on Fri, Sat and Sun but it's a little cold out there and besides that, Kenosha WI is 57 miles North on me and it's always a few degree's colder.

Ray..........

20 dollars for 90 min.  WOW.
Our range South Bay Rod And Gun Club charges $25 for all day. We have 300 yards range which includes  50,100,200 yards. Other ranges two fifty yd and one 100 meter range.
We do not require reservation unless it's the military and they require a range for all day.

Just saying

That outdoor that I belong to is cheaper yet for me. Being a Range Officer I don't pay a thing to shoot and my yearly membership is free. I just has to work 6 times a year at the wilderness area.
No reservations at the outdoor range but the indoor range gets pretty busy during the winter. Reservations aren't needed during the week but it's still $20.00 for 90 mins.

Say JCORD, check out this range....bristolranges.com... If you check it out make sure you click on the HOME PAGE and then scroll down to the wilderness area.
They posted some really cool areal videos of the ranges.

Ray
